    Games That Pay The Players

    I've tried/watched a few:

    Nano BrowserQuest is good for a playthrough (or two).

    Player Killers' Exchange is an austere stick-poking simulator.

    You have no excuses: money is free. See here and here and here. Tell'em where to send it and they'll give it to you in seconds. That's more than any empty gesture you can muster.

    I know there's a freaky phenomenon where some people turn 39 years old each year. Fortunately, the ColecoVision only turns 39 years old today.

    "Assembled in Mexico".



    "Product of Japan".

    Considering that the ROM is the most expensive part to produce, it would make sense to lump both versions into one bulk order ahead of time. Not all of the smaller third-parties did it this way....

    "9048" = the 48th week of 1990 or "about a month" before the Japanese release. ICs are often marked with additional codes to identify things such as the factory and assembly line.
